Well it did when me and my missus was there andsome. The water was running down the Hotel walls to meet the rising damp comeing up. We had a terrible three weeks. Apart from three or four days when the wind dropped and the rain stopped and the sun got through. Mind you we went in January 1994. Not a good time so we where told. rain

I've just got a Jaguar XE .... and it was a nightmare at first, everything electronic it took a lot of getting used to.
Sometimes I wonder just who is driving whom.

I honestly  don't understand the need for all these menu driven controls on a touch screen. I would much prefer old fashioned knobe and buttons - you soon get used to their location and don't need to take your eyes off the road to select them.

This BMW is bad enough but I recently hired a Citroen in Gran Canaria and it was a total nightmare. Wherever possible I avoid anything French but on this occasion had no choice.

My wife asked a passer-by to take a picture of us both. We were wandering round the Old Town Albufiera for her to take photos.

A nice feature of Portugal is that if you fall on hard times and have to leave a building unoccupied for a while – someone will feel sorry for you and paint it free of charge - presumably to stop it deteriorating.

There are a lot of such buildings in Alhao – this is one I was able to park near to get a photograph.

We rented a villa on the outskirts of Lagos last year.

Portugal has become one of our favourite holiday destinations. We rent a car and travel to somewhere new each day.

Having seen so many towns here they all blend into one and I can't remember anything outstanding about Lagos.

We visited Albufeira yesterday but it was a ghost town with hardly any visitors. The storms of last week seem to have effected the drains because there was a slight pong in the old town. I call it Au de Colon.  The escalators down the cliff to the old town stopped working and we had to walk back up which was a bit of a bugger.

We were stuck for somewhere to go that day so decided to go by train --as you say Lagos not much to talk about had the worst food there during our stay,

I've jumped off one Davo, either attached to a rubber band or into deep water.
